Hi Maths can be reached with enjoyment and some technique. Is there any medical institutions that concentrate on child difficulty and treat them appropriately. Whether she should be counseled by any doctor? Bcoz in school also they asked to take her from school. So we are in confusion what to do. She should study 10th but she can pass and come from 9th.

Get her evaluated by clinical psychologist for Learning disability. If it is the case ask them for possible concessions that could be availed for exam. All states have different rules. If not, a good teacher or remedial educator should help you out.

I'm going through a psychological situation. Ever since my childhood I've been neglected and mishandled by women in my family and father wouldn't support me either. So now I've sort of phobia towards women. I'm always suspicious of them and feel scared to start off a family. I would ward off any advance by a girl towards me too. This can't go on, as I want to get married. Can someone please help me.

Hi I will advice you not to hate anybody. You may require them anytime in life. I will prescribe you some harmless flower remedy available in homoeo shops. Try to buy original medicines. Add 5 drops of holly + 5 drops of willow + 5 drops of mimulus + 5 drops of white chestnut to 100 ml water and drink once before sleep daily. If any problems consult me online. Ok do not worry.

Hello, I am sorry for your loss. Life becomes hard when you loose your close one. But we need to cope up with the situation. Keeping everything with yourself will increase the burden. You need to talk to people you trust or make new friends even if you don't like it. Try and express your feelings in a way you like. Distract your self to the other activities that you like. You have a great life ahead, you have studies and a career to take care. It will take time but you will come over it.

I am Chaitanya 20 years old. I have short memory loss problem. When I want to remember something I can't. How I improve my memory power.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are young and if you implemented my suggestions, you will carry good memory far into your future. Additionally there are these left brain exercises which are tremendously useful. But here goes for the other things that can be done with great success. If you are under some stress, there will be difficulty remembering. So if you handled stress better, you will certainly improve. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is rested well to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. Recently they have discovered that moderate consumption of red wine and peanuts do help. You may also meet with a counselor to take care of the stress related emotions, and then you will fare better too.

There is no substitute to timely intervention for mental health problems. Every state has government hospital catering to psychiatric illnesses or there is psychiatry opd in most of the government hospitals. So taking your brother to any of these would be good idea.

Dear lybrate-user, If neurologist has cleared neurological causes, it is better to consult a psychiatrist or ortho. Without ortho consultation, don't continue diclofenac for a long term. There is a possibility of your anxiety and depression worsening with kind of pain. It may need more paxil.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you?re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

The stress that you feel is not dependent on the stressor: It is entirely dependent on your perception of stress. Change your perception, there is no stress: it’s like looking at a glass half full or half empty. Life is difficult no doubt, as a general rule, but what we do adds to the stress in our response. We add to the stress of life instead of reducing it or learning to deal with it. Many of us follow a policy of avoidance, like your question seeks. We cannot do that all of our lives. So the first thing to do is to change your perception. For example, look at it as a challenge that you would like to meet with a positive outlook. See everything as a gift from God to perform as though you are doing it for Him. God never gives us work to do beyond our capacity. Now you may argue that it is the Government that is giving all the work. That is true in the overt sense, but if you look at it with spiritual eyes, you know that it is ultimately given by God. Secondly, build a good constitution mentally, emotionally and physically to combat stress. Eat healthily, sleep well, and exercise regularly. Talk about your emotions regularly to a good friend every day. Learn stress management techniques, which is all about expressing your feelings in appropriate ways. Do Yoga and meditation. Pray every day to God to give you the strength, and offer your work as a prayer to Him – you will give your best and you will feel so satisfied when you do it well. At work you must learn to delegate much or some of your work to subordinates. If you do not trust, you will find it difficult to delegate.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Loosing someone dear and near causes grief. Grief leads to disappointment. Grief related disappointment manifests symptoms as in the case of depression. But disappointment symptoms are far shorter in duration than depression. These symptoms will vanish in some days or weeks. Don; t worry. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, hobbies etc could help you divert your attention. I suggest cognitive therapy. Take care.

I have bad habit of smoking cigarette from two years and it is becoming more and more. How can avoid this bad habit?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Avoid triggers. Avoid those people who eating gutkha. Do daily exercise. Get yourself engaged in some activities like reading, sports. Listeneing to music so that you will not get free time to eat gutkha. Constitutional homeopathic medicine will give you best result.

I'm a 22 year old girl, I tried strangulating myself when I was depressed as an attempt to kill myself two months ago. I used a charger cord. Tried a couple of times, gave up when I was about to pass out. Then I had neck pain for weeks, now I have lower back pain with my left leg pain. I looked up the internet it said scatia, (can be due to nerve damage). I'm not willing to tell parents about this. Can you help?

The best timings and ways to study depends entirely upon you. At least 6 hours of sleep is necessary for proper functioning of the brain so if you deprive yourself of too much sleep then your studies will be affected even though you study a lot of time. Early morning from 6 to 8 am is a very good time for studies since there will be minimal distractions. If you have any more problems to discuss or have any doubts about your exams you can contact me again. Take care.
